Dear Mr./Mrs./Miss,_____________________

STUDENTS’ INDUSTRIAL WORK-EXPERIENCE SCHEME

I am pleased that you are being placed for industrial training with _______________

___________________________________. I hope that you will enjoy your work there and find it useful. Will you please report to ___________________________________ at ________ a.m. on _________________________.

May I emphasize that, to a large extent, the benefit you gain from this period of training will depend on your attitude towards it. If you try to find out why a particular process is done one way instead of another way which appears better to you, you will learn much more than if you stand around without questioning anything. Not all the problems of industry are capable of unique solutions and so you should try to find the pros and cons of the various possible answers in order to judge whether the solution adopted was the best.

Do not despise manual work. You cannot hope to lead other men effectively, as I hope you will one day, unless you know some of the problems they have in doing their work. You do not necessarily have to be skilled in all the crafts you will eventually control. However, you do have to know enough about the various crafts to use them to best advantage in building the overall project for which you are responsible.

Go in suitable clothing. You cannot hope to learn about a process unless you take part, and you cannot take part if you are afraid of getting your clothes dirty.

During your period of training you will attend at the normal hours of work specified by your employer and will be subject to his normal discipline. This is an important part of the training. There had been several complaints of poor time-keeping by students participating in SIWES from employers in the past; I hope you will ensure that you are not a cause for complaint.

Industrial Training is a compulsory part of the degree course and you must pass in Industrial Training in order to qualify for your degree award. The following procedure must therefore be followed:

1) You should purchase a standard student’s log-book in which you will record at weekly intervals or shorter periods if you wish but not longer, details of the work you are doing under the headings:

- Name of Department where you worked and dates.

- Details of work allocated to you.

- Details of work actually done by you including drawings where necessary.

- Function of Department in which you are working.

- Relationship of Department in which you are working to the rest of the factory or organization.

- Conclusion with any comments on how you might improve the processes.

2) The log-book must be signed by the head of each section or department in which you work.

3) At the end of training you must prepare a summary report of not more than 10 pages on A4 paper giving the name of the firm; the dates of employment; a description of the work done by the organization as a whole and the particular departments for which you worked; an outline of the training programme you followed; an account of the work you actually did and conclusions on the training programme and the industrial process.

4) Before you leave the organization ask the training officer at the firm to sign your log book, your final report, the Employer’s Report Form B and ITF Form 8 and bring them back with you.

(5) On return to the University, the log-book, the final report, the Employer’s Report Form B and ITF Form 8 should be submitted to your Departmental SIWES Coordinator for assessment.

Many reports previously submitted have been copies from maintenance instructions or other books loaned by the employer. Whilst you may wish to copy such information into your log-book it does not tell us what we chiefly wish to know, namely work you actually did, the problems encountered and any problems you may have solved. Hence your final report must not be a repetition of standard technical data books.

You will be visited by members of the academic staff of the university at least once during your training. If you encounter any problems, these should be referred to the employer’s training officer in the first instance.

Please complete the enclosed Assumption of Duty Form and return it to Central Industrial Liaison and Placement Unit within two days at your post, so as to ensure that the visiting academic staff can locate you. Also please complete the ITF SPE-1 Form and submit at the ITF Area Office nearest to your location. This is essential to enable ITF to pay your stipend.

Please pay particular attention to the code of conduct enunciated in the log-book and do your best to make a success of this scheme.

With best wishes,

Yours sincerely,

Dear Sir / Madam,

STUDENTS’ INDUSTRIAL WORK-EXPERIENCE SCHEME

This letter is to introduce Mr./Mrs./Miss ……………………………………………. who is reporting for training under the above scheme.

The Students’ Industrial Work-Experience Scheme (SIWES) organized by the University of Lagos offers our students the opportunity of interacting with industrial environment while still undergoing their academic training. Owing to this exposure, the students come to appreciate the peculiarities of the environment in which they will eventually work and they are thus prepared to contribute almost immediately to the productivity of their employers after graduation.

Further, the University views participation in SIWES as essential to the training of competent science, engineering and technology graduates who are needed to bridge the technological gap between industrialized nations and Nigeria. Hence, successful participation in SIWES is a requirement for the award of degrees to students of these disciplines at the end of their courses of study.

The successful operation of the scheme requires the co-operation of employers as follows:

1. Completion and immediate Return of the Assumption of Duty Form to enable us know the exact location of the student in order to facilitate supervisory visits by academic members of staff of the University.

2. The log-book which the student keeps to record his operations should be signed by the supervisors of individual sections in which he worked.

3. The student’s log-book and final report should be signed by the industry’s Training Manager or Officer.

4. The Employer’s Report, (SIWES Form B) and ITF Form 8 should be completed by the employer at the end of training to enable assessment of student’s performance. This should be sent through the student in a sealed envelop.

5. The employer should nominate an Industrial Training Officer who will act as the contact with the University’s SIWES Coordinator and also check the student’s progress at regular intervals.

6. During training the students are expected to abide with your normal discipline, hours of work and time keeping regulations. They should undertake whatever work they are given, although it is hoped that the training aspect will be borne in mind in selecting suitable tasks.

7. If the student fails to avail himself of the opportunities provided or does not comply with time keeping and other regulations, he should first be given a warning, communicated also to the University’s SIWES Coordinator. Thereafter if no appreciable change occurs in his behavior he should be dismissed and the University’s SIWES Coordinator informed.

Your normal contact for any queries will be the University’s Departmental SIWES Coordinator.
However, if for any reason during the training period an emergency occurs and you are unable to contact the Departmental SIWES Coordinator, a message left in the Central Industrial Liaison and Placement Unit will be delivered to him.

We ask for your particular help in completing the documents requested in Sections, 2, 3 and 4 above as soon as the training is completed.

Once again we wish to thank you for your co-operation in taking students for training. We look forward to your continuing co-operation in ensuring the success of the scheme.

Yours faithfully,

DR. J. U. NWALOR,
Ag. DEPUTY DIRECTOR, CENTRAL INDUSTRIAL

Oliver Twist

...Finally identified, the real Oliver Twist workhouse reveals stories more brutal than even Dickens dared tell By Dr Ruth Richardson UPDATED:11:49 GMT, 25 March 2011 Please sir: Oliver Twist brought home the harsh realities of life in the workhouse The young woman at the workhouse gate was desperate. Clutching her belly, she begged to be allowed inside. She had nowhere else to go. The workhouse — for all the stories of cruelty that went on within its walls — was her only hope. She desperately needed shelter, for she was about to give birth. But the gatekeeper was inexorable: he had his orders. Babies were expensive. They required feeding, clothing and supervising and it would be at least six years before they could earn their keep, either in the workhouse or in factories, mills or up chimneys. The workhouse authorities had a duty to care for mothers in such a desperate plight. They were paid by the parish to house and clothe the wretched men, women and children who came to their doors as a last resort. For few would reside in the workhouse by choice. The conditions made prison seem comfortable in comparison. But the Beadle — the supervisor of the workhouse — cared less for the law than for his own pockets. He could make a small profit from able-bodied adults and children by setting them to work outside the workhouse, while he siphoned off some of the money that was supposed to feed them. Babies, on the other hand, were not profitable. The workhouse gate clanged shut...

Oliver Twist

...Oliver Twist in relation to the Newgate Calendars Born into a poor English family in 1812, Charles Dickens worked his way up from a life of poverty and debtor's prison, to become a writer of national acclaim. In his Victorian era, he was an exception to the rule because it was very difficult to break through the barriers of social class and better oneself. Because of his bleak childhood, Dickens was one of the few writers of his time who could express the horrors of society as they really were. One of his most famous novels is Oliver Twist. This story centers on a young boy named Oliver whose real identity is unknown when his mother dies in childbirth. As an orphan, he is exploited by corrupt and selfish authority figures, and is forced into a life of poverty, hard labor, misery and crime. Oliver suffers horribly and often takes the blame for others' misdeeds. Dickens is showing that Oliver is a good person, and the bad things that happen to him are through no fault of his own, but because society and the people around him are bad. From his earliest childhood days, Oliver is treated harshly by society. He was born in a workhouse where he is barely given enough food to live and is forced to do hard manual labor. Dickens satirically describes the authorities' view of the poor in this passage: "'Oho!' said the board, looking very knowing, 'we are the fellows to set this to rights; we'll stop it all, in no time.' So they established the rule that all poor people should have...

Oliver Twist

...Oliver Twist is one of Charles Dickens’ most famous novels and a classic poor-to-rich story about an orphan who was born into a workhouse and must navigate his way around the criminal underworld to avoid being corrupted. Literature incorporates the history of the workhouse and reflects the concerns of both paupers and ratepayers, and it also challenges the dehumanizing effects of the Law’s administration. The time period of Oliver Twist was still under the time of the Old Poor Law, but it was mainly seen as criticizing of the New Poor Law. Felix Driver writes, “The account of the starving child who asked for more was almost certainly based on the earlier system, although the extent to which the old survived in the new does not entirely invalidate the criticism”. Scholars tend to focus on the scene where Oliver asks for more food as indicative of the meagre portions that the inmates received. These scholars identify hunger as the main threat of the workhouse, but that approach neglects the larger threat of death, which shapes Oliver’s character. When the opening chapters of the novel are considered more broadly, the workhouse is actually a site where the poor carry an obligation to one another. High death rates within the workhouse encourage solidarity as seen by the behaviours of the orphans. While providing charity carries the risk of supporting idlers, and Dickens is consistently critical of charity, he also writes the poor as recognizing common risks and finding their......

Oliver Twist an Analysis

...Oliver Twist written by Charles Dickens Oliver Twist published in 1838, a novel written by Charles Dickens, who was a leading English novelist of the Victorian ear and also considered of being one of the greatest English writers with deep-storytelling novels. ``Oliver Twist``, Dickens second novel, tells the story of the orphan Oliver who is through unfortunate circumstances forced to take part in criminal acts of the gangland of London. Where from he is later on rescued. I decided to analyse how Dickens tried to describe and expressed the poverty and the abundance in his novel, in doing so I will also try to direct my attention on the conditions of life at that time in England. To clearly understand you have to know how England was looking like around 1830 – also called the Victorian ear. In the 19th century more and more people moved into towns, with intent to find work. Cities like London were not prepared for such crowed of people and overcrowded very fast. And with the crowing number of people the living standards went down. So it was normal that a whole street had to share toilets and water. On the other hand there were the rich, which had bigger houses with fluent water and underground sewers. Dickens is showing in his novel all the time the two, to this time ruling standards of life, and Oliver Twist performs as his character who walks between and tries to reveal them. On the one side there is Mr. Bumble, the beadle, his job is to administrate the finances......

...2.2 Мовна реалізація авторської концепції добра і зла в романі Чарльза Діккенса «Пригоди Олівера Твіста». Дослідження структури роману «Пригоди Олівера Твіста» (“Adventures of Oliver Twist” 1837-1839) дозволяє зробити висновок про те, що художній світ, створений автором, організований за принципом дихотомії, що відтворює авторське сприйняття навколишньої дійсності як арени боротьби протилежний сил Добра і Зла. Контраст як форма вираження протиріччя найбільше відповідала ідейним установкам письменника, що намагався в художній формі відобразити протиріччя дійсності. Контраст у романі переростає рамки стилістичного прийому і стає організуючим принципом системи, збудованої на протилежностях. Маркованими членами опозиції цієї системи виступають поняття Добра і Зла. Присутність всезнаючого автора, його безпосередня оцінка зображуваного відіграють першочергову роль в контрастній організації роману. Мовні сигнали авторського ставлення до зображуваного виконує інтегруючу функцію. Розпорошені в тексті роману, вони слугують цілі текстотворення, об’єднуючи частини дихотомічної структури твору в одне ціле. Характерною рисою лексичної системи роману «Пригоди Олівера Твіста» є її контрастний характер. Вона являє собою сукупність слів протилежної семантики – позитивної і негативної, - які виражають відповідно два протилежних ставлення автора до зображуваного. Така системність прослідковується на рівні всього роману, що вказує на цілеспрямоване використання автором лексичних засобів......

Analysis Oliver Twist

...Emily Mycroft 23 November 2015 William Skiles History 102 Term Paper: Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist, written in 1837, illustrates what is like to be a child in the 1830’s in London. This novel shows the truth about how the Victorian society’s viewed and treated the unfortunate. The foolishness of individualism, failure of charity, clarity of an immoral city, and how the countryside is overemphasized are all main themes of this novel. With being a child in this time period it was really hard to be noticed as an innocent; these kids were growing up in the middle class as workers in terrible conditions. Survival of the fittest was what the Victorians lived their lives by. They believed that if everyone in their society would look out for their own interests, that everything would run effortlessly. But that isn’t at all what happened; Dickens shows us that there was much more issues and problems with they way children were being treated. “[…] as Oliver looked out of the parlour window, and saw the Jew roll [his old clothes] up in his bag and walk away, he felt quite delighted to think that they were safely gone, and that there was now no possible danger of his ever being able to wear them again” (14.8). At the end of the novel everyone is starting to turn against each other and give in to the philosophy, of everyone for himself or herself. However, the second group of Oliver and his many friends prove their community and society......

Oliver Twist Essay

...Oliver Twist is a novel by Charles Dickens, published in 1837 and was concerned 1834 Poor Law. The Poor Law was introduced by the Prime Minister, Earl Grey. The Poor Law should have been introduced to help the poor but instead it made their life a living hell. The poor were put into workhouses and little children were put into a baby farm until the age of 9. Dickens motive for writing this novel was to make people understand the full horrors of the Poor Law. Dickens showed his dislike of the 1834 Poor Law through his characterisation. Mrs Mann runs the baby farm which is where the young Oliver lives. She is a very greedy, callous and corrupt woman, “she appropriated the weakly stipend to her own use” which means that she steals from the little children that she was “supposed” to look after and starves them. She is a lying hypocrite, she tells the world that she “cares” and “loves” the children, this is because she says “Ah, bless’em, that I do, dear as it is “replied Mrs Mann.” I couldn’t see ‘em suffer before my very eyes, you know, sir.” Mrs Mann is lying so that she can keep her job and so she can continue to steal from the children. Mrs Mann neglects and abuses the children because “either it sickened from want and cold, or fell into the fire from neglect, or got half-smothered by accident.” Many children died and their deaths covered up. She has no womanly feelings, Dickens gives her the name, Mrs Mann. Mr Bumble employs Mrs Mann to run the baby farm. He is very......

Oliver Twist Essay

...Dickens’ Oliver Twist was written and published during the Victorian era, 1838. Dickens’ use of language successfully denotes contextual issues and narrative concepts, an important social commentator who used fiction effectively to highlight the contextual issues of society and class and criminality. The narrative techniques Dickens uses, unified with the context in which he wrote the novel, exemplify his ideas throughout the text. The use of good literature adds to an audience’s understanding of life during those times. It embodies thought and feeling on matters of human importance. Dickens uses the characters and situations in the novel to make a deliberate statement of his personal views of society and class about the poor laws and the criminal system. Society in Oliver Twist is hugely divided. While the upper classes live in their comfortable large houses, the lower class are seen to lead wretched lives, driven to crime by hunger and deprivation. At times Dickens steps out of the novel and addresses the reader directly using indirect speech. The opening of the book, the detached narrator impresses upon the reader that Oliver was only seen as a burden upon the parish, and also highlights the injustice of falling into a predestined social class. “The parish authorities resolved that Oliver should be ‘farmed’... be despatched to a branch workhouse where juvenile offenders against the poor-laws… ‘. He uses shifting narrative voice throughout Oliver Twist to provoke......

Charles Dickens "Oliver Twist"

...Throughout Charles Dickens’ book “Oliver Twist” the author elaborates on one main theme, the failure of charity. The first part of Oliver Twist takes into account the charity organizations run by the church and the government. The system Dickens describes in his book, explains that the poor could only receive government help if they moved and worked in government workhouses. Residents of those workhouses were compared to inmates whose rights were taken away for the price of food and shelter. Labor was required, and rations of food and clothing were slim. The workhouses operated on the principle that poverty was the equivalent to laziness and that the awful conditions in the workhouse would inspire the poor to better their own lives. The economic situation of the Industrial Revolution made it impossible for many to do so, and the workhouses did not provide to help with the social and economical adjustment upward. As Dickens points out, the government agencies who ran the workhouses violated the values they spoke of to the poor. Dickens describes with a sarcastic tone that of the greed, laziness, and arrogance of charitable workers like Mr. Bumble and Mrs. Mann. Charitable institutions only played on the awful conditions in which the poor would live anyway. Making orphan children like Oliver Twist start work at a very young age. Never giving him a chance to move up in the world. The book first opens with a look on how the poor must live and the conditions of the work......

Torsion Lab

...Purdue University Calumet College of Technology Department of Mechanical Engineering Technology MET 21100 – Strength of Materials Torsion Lab Experiment Performed: 4/3/14 Report Due Date: 4/17/14 Report Submitted: 4/17/14 Joshua Deakin Prepared for Aaron Kolb Introduction: In the designing of buildings and structures, torsion, or torque could be applied to certain members. Most times, torsion is found at almost all times in a vehicle, on each axle, the driveshaft, and many others parts in a vehicle. These members all need to withstand the angular moment or load that is acted on it. You do not want to step on the gas, and your driveshaft or axles snapping. You wouldn’t be going anywhere anytime soon. The torsion test primarily measures, at a certain moment or load, how much the bar or specimen is twisting and at what angle. This test can also be done in reverse order measuring the angle first, and recording the torque on the test material. The testing of a “torque-angle” graph can be somewhat similar to a “stress-strain” curve. There are a few different types of torsion tests * Torsion only: applying only a torque (what we had done) * Axial-torsion: Applying and axial, as in tension or compression, and a torsion force to the specimen * Failure: applying the load until the specimen fails, which includes a physical break, kink or other defect in the specimen * Proof: In this test, you apply a torsion and hold that force for an extended......

...Length Box Braids The Pros and Cons of Mini Twists for Natural Hair 45NATURAL HAIR CARE PROTECTIVE STYLING by Chinwe – January 31, 2014 Share Button Pin It minitwist5 (Circa 2010) By Chinwe of Hair and Health Mini twists are essentially tiny twists, much smaller than the diameter of a pencil. In some cases, mini twists are so small that the hair may appear loose rather than twisted. THE GOOD: Mini twists last longer — anywhere from three to six weeks — than larger twists. Because they are so small, they tend not to frizz and age as quickly. This is great news for those who want to leave their natural hair alone for several weeks at a time. Not only do mini twists last longer, they also allow for more versatility in styling. Because they are so small, it is much easier to achieve a range of styles than with larger twists. A lot of the styles can mimic those on loose natural hair. minitwist1 (In 2013) THE NOT SO GREAT: Mini twists can take hours to a day or two to install or take down. This can be a challenge if you have to be somewhere or you just do not have the time or patience. In terms of helping with patience, watching a few movies or television shows can help pass the time. When it comes to needing to be somewhere, some naturals prefer to start their mini twists in the front or along the perimeter of their hair so that they can “fake the finished look” if they haven’t completed the twists in time.

...is to assign a specific exercise to each suit. The example Barnhart uses is “hearts are pushups, clubs are squats, spades are bicycle crunches, and diamonds are mountain climbers”. The number on the card is the amount of reps you have to do, face cards count as 10 reps and aces count as 11. The second excise Barnhart talks about is the lunge and twist. The lunge and twist focuses on the legs (hamstrings, quad, glutes), but when you add the twist it helps develop core strength, proprioception, and balance. The lunge and twist starts by holding a dumbbell the long-ways between both at about chest high and close to the body. After you are in position you perform the lunge, “If you lunge forward with your right leg, at the apex of your lunge, rotate your torso to the right side. Hold for one to three seconds. Return to the original position and then repeat with the left leg”. Barnhart has two ways that he recommends to do the lunge and twist, the first way is to add three to four sets to the lunge and twist , performing 12 to 15 reps with a low weight dumbbell (5 to 20 pounds maximum). The second way is to perform as many lunge twists as you can in a 30 to 45 second interval, then rest and repeat one to two more times. The third excise Barnhart talks about is push up jacks. The pushup jacks are designed to build stamina and endurance in the upper body as well as the lower body. The pushup jacks are started by beginning in standard push up position and do a regular push......

Broback Mountain

...The life he builds, which involves financial hardship and eventually child support, effectively prohibits him from escaping. Ennis is a prisoner of the life he has been born into. Without the financial wherewithal to escape, without any sort of community support for his sexual proclivities, and imbued with the belief that one must bear whatever one can’t fix, Ennis is fated to live out the rest of his life as a man who tasted happiness once but has never again reached that peak. Though it is Jack Twist who, we infer, is murdered by those who oppose his sexual orientation, it is Ennis Del Mar—living in his trailer, confined to a sad life on the broad, flat plains of Wyoming—who is the story’s tragic soul. Jack Twist Jack Twist is the more verbally aggressive and outgoing of the story’s two main characters. His name is onomatopoetic in its quick, light-footed sound, the clarity of its consonants strikingly dissimilar to the marbles-in-mouth quality of “Ennis Del Mar.” Jack Twist is flashy and brazen, a would-be rodeo star, and later a glitzy Texan transplant who sports a brass belt buckle and large capped teeth. He is far less...
